Hope Considered

"Fear cannot be without hope nor hope without fear." 

(Benedict Spinoza, also known as Baruch, 1632-77, Jewish born Dutch philosopher and theologian. This
wonderful quote, from Ethics, 1677, helps reassure us that in fear there is always hope, and that when we hope, we also fear, and so we can embrace and welcome both feelings.)
